About LUV

Linux Users of Victoria is one of Australia's largest GNU/Linux, free software and open source user groups. We conduct two regular events in Melbourne each month. On the first Tuesday of the month LUV runs technical lectures at 200 Victoria St. Carlton, close to Melbourne's CBD and at Infoxchange in Richmond on the third Saturday of the month, LUV run a hands on workshop, addressing the issues of the users who turn up. The workshops have a "beginners" level talk, whereas the technical lectures are for an "intermediate" and "advanced" audience.

LUV has four regional chapters in Ballarat, Geelong, Shepparton, and the La Trobe Valley. Many of our members also attend Melbourne Linux Users Group (MLUG).

We believe that software patents cause net harm to our members, the software industry and the community. We therefore support removing software from patentable subject matter.

LUV Beginners May Meeting: Dealing with Security as a Linux Desktop User

May 20 2017 12:30
May 20 2017 16:30
Location: 
Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond

This presentation will introduce the various aspects of IT security that Linux Desktop users may be grappling with on an ongoing basis. The target audience of the talk will be beginners (newbies) - who might have had bad experiences using Windows OS all these years, and don't know what to expect when tiptoeing into the new world of Linux.  General Linux users who don't always pay much attention to aspects of security may also find interest in sharing some of the commonsense practices that are essential to using our computers safely.
